I saw this idea on another blog and I thought it was brilliant. I loves book subscription boxes, but we can't all afford them. I also love to read and share my love of reading with others. So...
Starting with this post, each month I will curate a virtual box with bookish goodies and links to buy. Note that I have no affiliation with these businesses... I'm just sharing things I like. I will, however, purchase and read the month's book. During the month, you can follow me on Instagram and Litsy for my thoughts (both username Kar2b).
August Theme: Spaced Out
Waste of Space by Gina Damico
Cram ten hormonal teens into a spaceship and blast off: that’s the premise for the ill-conceived reality show Waste of Space. The kids who are cast know everything about drama—and nothing about the fact that the production is fake. Hidden in a desert warehouse, their spaceship replica is equipped with state-of-the-art special effects dreamed up by the scientists partnering with the shady cable network airing the show.
And it’s a hit! Millions of viewers are transfixed. But then, suddenly, all communication is severed. Trapped and paranoid, the kids must figure out what to do when this reality show loses its grip on reality.
Now, on to the bookish extras...
This nail polish is out of this world with star and planet shaped glitter. You can use it by itself or over a color. I love it! https://www.livelovepolish.com/products/starrily-galaxy-nail-polish
Next, I'd include these galaxy earrings. They're simple, but stunning. https://www.etsy.com/listing/221021402/galaxy-earrings-nebula-stud-earrings
Every book box needs a journal, This constellation notebook is gorgeous! https://www.etsy.com/listing/459394158/constellation-notebook-star-notebook
Then, a couple cute stickers that fit the theme. I love personalizing notebooks with fun stickers. https://www.etsy.com/listing/497830234/i-need-my-space-sticker
Last, but not least, a treat to eat while you read. Astronaut ice cream fits the bill nicely! http://www.astronauticecreamshop.com/product/freeze-dried-neapolitan-astronaut-ice-cream-2/
So, what do you think of my first curation? Do you like this idea? What books are you looking forward to in August? Feel free to comment below, and as always, Happy Reading!
